I have to connect my nikon DSLR to my laptop wirelessly. I am not really satisfy by the Eye-Fi cards I would like to know if there is any rival who offer same feature in order to compare performances and without having to register you device online (which is problematic when you don't have internet connexion). — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:04, 15 September 2011 (UTC)

+1 I reckon this is a poor step to have to go through, what if eyefi went under and people wanted to change settings etc? I'm currently looking at possible ways around this (which brought me here in the first place). Look for 'eyefi alternative' a few items come up. (talk) 21:14, 4 February 2012 (UTC)

New Eye-Fi card[edit]

On June 10, 2009, Eye-Fi launched a new 4 gb card that supports raw files and peer to peer networking among other features. I've personally tried it and feel it is both unique and notable. Just wanted to declare my intentions to amend the page with the details in advance so please step forward if you have concerns. On the record I am saying I am not affiliated with the company. Thanks!

eCos License[edit]

At the link in the heading, EyeFi talks about hardware briefly, and contributions to eCos. --PidGin128 (talk) 17:41, 7 January 2010 (UTC) [Heh, I remember to sign in, and forget to sign the post.]

I don't get it. --Rsrikanth05 (talk) 19:42, 7 January 2010 (UTC)

3rd Party apps[edit]

I'm not certain of the worthiness of mentioning 3rd party apps/ upload servers. I doubt they are as notable/ mature as other prolific mods, but they do exist, and might deserve a passing mention. --PidGin128 (talk) 17:45, 7 January 2010 (UTC)

I agree. If it ain't about Eye-Fi, it shouldn't be on the page.. --Rsrikanth05 (talk) 19:41, 7 January 2010 (UTC)

-- Should not similar be listed EG other with GPS memory cards? -

Link updates?[edit]

It looks like the ikontools link for the component breakdown is pointing to a site that has expired. Is there an alternative or cached version somewhere?--RossO (talk) 16:34, 1 January 2012 (UTC)

I replaced the broken link today to one with similar content. DFH (talk) 13:42, 22 May 2013 (UTC)

Approval in some jurisdictions[edit]

I'm unable to find a list of jurisdictions where use approval is required, as per Canon's user guide notice. Presumably they're referring to the usual list of countries that are police states and dictatorships but it would be good to see a definitive list if one exists. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 09:58, 12 June 2012 (UTC)

I suspect that the determining factor is that countries have different frequencies allowed for Wi-Fi communications. OosoomTalk 21:29, 12 June 2012 (UTC)

Article is very out of date and getting increasingly biased[edit]

This is partly inevitable, as the article is about one company that was a pioneer in a particular field dating back to 2005. But time has moved on, and other players have entered the field. See for example Transcend Crashes the Wireless Memory Card Party - Launches Wi-Fi SD Cards

Currently there is no mention of rival firms here - or of rival approaches that have also emerged since 2005. So the encyclopedia entry ends up giving the misleading impression that the original pioneer Eye-Fi has the field completely to itself.

I'm happy to have a go at minor amendments, but a better solution might be to split the article into two. One can remain about the particular firm Eye-Fi, and another should be about the category of wireless memory cards and similar devices. There is the article Secure Digital, but it's already long and gives hardly any space to WiFi SD cards.

The Eye-Fi article could have a short history section added, and then continue as now about its products. Coverage of the technology better belongs in the general wireless memory cards article. Anything more than a mention of other brands such as such SanDisk, PQI, Transcend and Toshiba also belongs there, or in the entries for those particular firms. But if we stick with just this Eye-Fi article to deal with Wi-Fi SD cards, they do need some mention here for balance.

Finally it is important to say that all these products that build WiFi capability into the memory card are now facing growing competition from a different source. The cameras and other devices into which people put SD cards are acquiring their own WiFi functionality. This may end up being a better or worse approach - it's not for Wikipedia to say. But as a reference work it does need to reflect that this movement is happening. The general article could touch on the players (e.g. virtually all consumer camera makers!) and perhaps the pros and cons of the alternative cards-versus-camera approaches.

Eye-Fi first started started putting beta devices into the hands of the paying public at the end of 2006. By the end of the following year they were widely on sale. That's a long time ago in technology terms. It's hardly surprising the category covered here has developed.

History: see for example Eye-Fi on sale at Walmart, archived from the original on 2007-11-03, retrieved 2013-06-30 .

I agree the article should briefly mention (and link to) articles about alternatives, but this particular article is about Eye-Fi, not wireless-enabled SHDC cards in general. --Northernhenge (talk) 19:36, 5 August 2013 (UTC)
This isn;t a general article. it is specific about this brand as it was the first one. We can create one, about the generic card with wifi enabled. --Rsrikanth05 (talk) 08:19, 6 August 2013 (UTC)

an Eye-Fi card for sale in Tokyo, February 2010

Eye-Fi was a company based in Mountain View, California, that produced SD memory cards with Wi-Fi capabilities. Using an Eye-Fi card inside a digital camera, one could wirelessly and automatically upload digital photos to a local computer or a mobile device such as a smartphone or tablet computer. The company ceased business in 2016.

Eye-Fi offered multiple models that varied in data transfer speed, storage capacity, and the provided software and other services.[1][2]


Eye-Fi was originally known for its WiFi enabled SD card ('Cards') product line which began commercial shipments in 2007. Since its original creation, Eye-Fi continually released upgraded versions of its hardware products, most recently the Eyefi MobiPro WiFi SD cards available in 16GB and 32GB capacities.

Eye-Fi Cards are compatible with virtually all digital cameras manufactured since 2010. Approximately 400 models from Canon, Nikon, Sony, Olympus, Casio and others also include Eyefi firmware built into their cameras under the Eye-Fi Connected branding. Eyefi Connected cameras are able to control various functions of the Eye-Fi Cards, including the ability to manually turn the WiFi feature on/off.

The core feature of all Eyefi Cards is the ability to automatically detect when a new image file has been captured on a camera.

Eyefi Mobi[edit]

Once a device running the Eyefi Mobi software detects the presence of an Eyefi Mobi Card, any new images captured on the Card are automatically sent to the device running the Eyefi Mobi app. This mode is referred to as 'automatic transfer'. In addition, the Mobi Pro product line provides for a 'selective transfer' mode in which only photos designated by the user are transferred to the Eyefi Mobi app. Identification of which files to transfer is accomplished using an in-camera operation, usually consistent with files designated as 'protected' or 'locked'.

Initial set-up of Eyefi Mobi and Eyefi Mobi Pro Cards is accomplished by installing the Eyefi Mobi app on the user's device. Once installed, the user is directed to insert the Eyefi Card into their camera and to capture a photo or video. When users start the Eyefi Mobi app on their device the first time, they are prompted to enter the 'activation code' for their Eyefi Card. The activation code is provided on a card inside the Eyefi product packaging. Once the user enters the code into the app, the Eyefi Card will begin transferring new files to that device. The set-up operation must be completed for any device to which the user wishes to transfer images from their camera. Once completed, there is no need to repeat the set-up.

Eyefi Mobi Pro products support two major WiFi network types - so called 'direct' and 'infrastructure' wireless networks. A direct network connection is a peer-to-peer transfer between the Card and the device running the Eyefi app. Infrastructure transfer is accomplished when both the Card and the device running the Eyefi Mobi app are within range of the same router based network. In the latter case, the Eyefi Mobi Pro card must be set-up to recognize the SSID and password of the router based network. Configuration of the Eyefi Mobi Pro Card to enable selective transfer as well as set-up for router based transfer is accomplished using the Eyefi Mobi Desktop apps on Mac and Windows PC platforms. Eyefi Mobi Cards only support direct mode, automatic file transfer, so no desktop set-up is required.

The card was designed by Eye-Fi and is manufactured in Thailand with proprietary and off-the-shelf components.

End of support for X2 series cards[edit]

The company abruptly announced on June 30, 2016 that, due to security vulnerabilities present in the cards, all previous generation cards (X2 and before) would cease to be supported by the company's proprietary software after 16 September 2016.[3] Eye-Fi said that some functions not requiring contact with its servers, such as transfer directly to a computer or mobile device and Selective Transfer, might continue to work, although this was not guaranteed. However, to continue using these modes, they had to be configured before 16 September 2016.

In August 2016, in response to complaints, Eye-Fi announced the 'one-time release' of a new, Mac-only software utility 'to allow more time for customers seeking an alternative WiFi SD card solution.' No updates or support were offered.[4]


Eye-Fi released all new software starting in June, 2014 based on the Eye-Fi Mobi product line.

Eye-Fi Mobi and Eye-Fi Cloud[edit]

The Eye-Fi Mobi apps and desktop software are proprietary software products available for Apple and Microsoft's desktop and mobile operating systems, and Google's mobile operating system. They are not offered for Linux.

Eye-Fi Mobi apps are able to receive photos and videos from cameras equipped with the Eye-Fi Mobi WiFi SD memory card. The company announced in October 2015 that the apps will also directly connect to cameras with built-in WiFi radio modules such as GoPro, and selected models from Canon, Casio, Nikon and Olympus.

New photos and videos received into Eye-Fi Mobi apps are saved locally to the native device and optionally can be synchronized to the Eye-Fi Cloud 'storage' service. Eye-Fi Cloud provides a hub for all user devices to sync their private photo collection. Original image files are retained in Eye-Fi Cloud and photo are then saved in a compressed JPEG file format to save space on synchronized devices. The original files are always available via browser access to Eye-Fi Cloud ( Video files transferred to Eye-Fi Cloud are also saved in their original format but are also transcoded into a streaming media format. Once transcoded, videos can be played back on inside Eye-Fi Mobi apps and within a browser via in-app streaming at 480p resolution.[citation needed]

Energy used by apps mac. With the Activity Monitor app in macOS, you can force quit misbehaving apps, find out how much energy your Mac is using, and see which apps or processes are eating the most processor cycles. Your Mac tracks the “energy impact” of each running application in a few places. Like on an iPhone or iPad, you can see exactly which apps are using the most power, and adjust your usage accordingly so you don’t run out of juice. Applications aren’t the only thing draining battery power, of course. The Energy pane shows overall energy use and the energy used by each app: Energy Impact: A relative measure of the current energy consumption of the app. Lower numbers are better. A triangle to the left of an app's name means that the app consists of multiple processes. Nov 08, 2019  Power Nap allows your Mac to occasionally wake from sleep to perform tasks such as checking for new email or software updates. During Power Nap, your Mac leaves its displays and other hardware that isn't needed for these tasks powered down to save energy. After it's finished, your Mac automatically goes back to sleep to save energy.

Beyond storage, Eye-Fi Cloud also provides a range of features designed to simplify organization, access and sharing of private image collections. The enhanced features include machine learning based analytics of a photo collection, branded as Smart Tags, search based organization 'Smart Views' as well as more traditional tagging and album creation. Sharing is accomplished via a variety of methods and generally intended for limited private sharing to individuals and small groups.

Eye-Fi Cloud is free for one year following activation for users who purchase an Eye-Fi Mobi Pro version of the products. Eye-Fi Mobi apps are free for perpetual use with any Eye-Fi Mobi branded product. Eye-Fi Cloud for smartphones and cameras with built-in WiFi is available only to users with a 30-day or 1-year subscription. As of October 2015, the monthly subscription for Eye-Fi Cloud was US$4.99 and the annual subscription was $49.99. Active Eye-Fi Cloud subscriptions support unlimited storage for photos and up to 300 videos of up to 15-minutes per month.

In 2016, Eye-Fi Cloud was purchased by a subsidiary of the Japanese company Ricoh[5], and rebranded as Keenai. The service is defunct as of December 1, 2018.[6]


Eye-Fi offers an iPhone app, App Store.[7]

The company also offers apps for Android and Windows Phones in the Google Play Store and Windows Phone store.[8][9]


Third-party free software exists to enable Eye-Fi cards to be accessed from Linux.[10]
